Arsenal midfielder Aaron Ramsey insists that Arsenal have improved immensely in defence.

Arsenal midfielder Aaron Ramsey believes that the Gunners deserve credit for their improvements in defence.

The North London outfit's back line has been criticised over the course of the campaign, but Ramsey is adamant that the partnership between Per Mertesacker and Laurent Koscielny is stable.

"We're defending really well as a team," Ramsey told the club's official website. "We're defending high up.

"Communication is good between the team and the two of them. Everyone is working for each other at the moment and I think everyone can see that."

Arsenal are currently in third place in the Premier League, one point ahead of Chelsea.
